Trip Cancellation Insurance

As there are many unforeseen circumstances that may occur during or leading up to the trip, we highly recommend trip cancellation insurance.

Trip cancellation insurance may allow you to get reimbursement if you need to cancel your expedition when you are not entitled to a refund from Alpine Ascents.

This is the only way to receive a refund for unused services.

Alpine Ascents International offers a plan in conjunction with our travel insurance partner.

This expedition was incredible. The pace was excellent, the Guides were superb and clearly had the safety of the climb and climbers first and foremost. They consistently demonstrated the experience, subject matter expertise and interpersonal skills necessary to get us to the top. Could not have asked for a more professional group of guides who made the expedition enjoyable, rewarding and physically demanding.
